The Kat-huber Line

Played a session of  "On a Wing and Prayer - Bomber Command in the Battle for the Ruhr, July 1943" (an addendum to the updated copy of  Donald Featherstone's Air War Games)

The bombing run was stopped cold when the Germans deployed the Kat-huber line.

 Eventually, the bomber got through, although it had to shake off a night fighter attack.

Rather a disappointing game. Flew through 11 zones with only one attack, which was easily evaded. It needs more action.

Boargamegeek has the charts and rules for B-17 QOTS so I may make a DIY version.
